Hi Folks,

long time no see (and sorry about that). Today, I have some exciting news I'd like to share with you:

The pair of peregrine falcons - Perenelle and Falco - who took up residence in a tall and unfinished building in Fellbach (Germany) 1 year ago have started breeding about a week ago! We had managed to have 2 webcams installed in the nestbox just in time with not quite 2 weeks to spare before the first egg was laid. Which is why we know that they are now sitting on four eggs.

You can follow the activities on top of the 107 meter tall building via a dedicated website:

http://falcommunity.de/

It's obviously in German so here are the "important" l inks:

Camera 1 outside the nestbox
http://falcommunity.de/falkenkameras/falken-cam1

Camera 2 inside the nestbox:
http://falcommunity.de/falkenkameras/falken-cam2

If the stream doesn't start, refreshing the page and then clicking on the start icon usually helps.

Galerie page with collection of pictures captured by the cameras:
http://falcommunity.de/bildergalerie/falken-cam-galerie

Here is a picture captured shortly after the cameras were operative - Falco about to land:

Enjoy poking around!

Cheers

Very nice setup!

Thanks, Shaky!

I wasn't involved with the technical setup but we luckily have a member in our conservation group who has the relevant know-how and prepared everything. We have a page about the setup (in German) and Google-translate does a reasonable job at translating it, but loses all the pictures in the result.

I like that little Green Backyard  HD Bird Camera Kit. I might get 2 of them to replace Cameras 2 and 3 if I can figure out a better mounting system. (The included mounts have 2 degrees of freedom. We need 3 because our roof is slanted.)

Their setup is similar to our 2 setups in Powers and TSB. Powers has an NVR and a POE switch driving the IP HD Cameras. TSB has a wireless Internet antenna system and POE+ for the HD PTZ dome Camera (Main). I will be installing an NVR at TSB in a few weeks. Both Powers and TSB have 3 servers each streaming video (2 live and one backup) to YouTube, which is the streaming provider for the Rfalconcam website.

What really stands out for me at Fellbach is the precision engineered nest box mounting system. It's beautiful!

Jess received this from Dr. Friedemann Tewald:

Hallo to everyone,
 
my name ist Friedemann aka docfred,
 
I have heard about the forum, because of Bärbel Winkler.
 
I am the administrator of “falcommunity.de”. As Bärbel told, we run two webcams to study our peregrine falcons.
Step by step we will translate our site in english.
 
Kind regards
Friedemann

Our roof is slanted also. My brother produced a wooden wedge to correct the angle. This is for the dome camera. We want the camera to pan horizontal.

The Green Backyard Camera is great. The only problems are the small screws on each side to fix the angle. Perhaps you have to yous some glue to attach the camera to metal firmly.

A wedge would work for us too, and thank you for the information about the small screws.
